PRISTINA (Kosovo), March 23 (SeeNews) – Kosovo’s privately-owned public electricity supplier KESCO said on Friday it is reducing electricity supply due to an unexpected outage of unit B of coal-fired power plant Kosova B.
All competent institutions in the energy sector are engaged in resolving this situation, KESCO said in a press release, adding that the power plant unit is expected to start operation on Friday afternoon.
Some 98% of electricity generated in Kosovo comes from two old, inefficient and highly polluting lignite-fired power plants, Kosovo A and B. Kosovo citizens suffer power shortages due to insufficient output, ageing grids and thefts. Imports account for about 10% of electricity supply, according to a World Bank report on Kosovo's energy sector.
